The oddsmakers currently have Villanova as -14 point favorites and the over/under at 141.5 total points.
Villanova comes into this game ranked third in the AP preseason top 25 college basketball rankings after having a great run last season and were heading towards a deep run in the tournament before all the shutdowns happened. Villanova is also the early favorite to win the 2021 Championship at the +750 price above both Baylor and Gonzaga.
Villanova will return most of that same powerhouse team except for Saddiq Bey, who was drafted this week at #19 by the Detroit Pistons, so congratulations to that young man and I wish him nothing but success in the NBA. Bey was a vital piece in the Wildcats success over the past two seasons, he lead the team last year with 16 points per game. Jermaine Samuels will use the extra weight he put on in the offseason to bully defenders at the rim and help fill the defensive stopper role that Saddiq Bey left open.
Senior guard, Collin Gillespie will be the x-factor in this game. He averaged 15.1 points per game for the Wildcats and helped the team finish 13-5 in the Big East last season. Villanova only averaged 73.2 points per game last season and gave up an average of 66.4 points per game.
Villanova is 7-1 straight up in their last 8 games and the total has gone under in 9 of the Wildcats last 10 games when playing as the favorite.
Boston College comes into this game after a 13-19 overall record last season and a miserable 7-13 in the ACC. The Eagles will be returning three starters including guard Jay Heath, forward Steffon Mitchell and forward/center CJ Felder. Boston College will get back Wynston Tabbs, who missed all of last season due to a knee injury. In the fifteen games Tabbs played as a freshman, he averaged 15 points a game, so this kind of talent back will help the Eagles at least have a better season than last and maybe finally hitting that goal of getting their first NCAA Tournament berth in twelve years.
Boston College scored an average of 70.3 points per game last season and gave up an average of 66.8 points per game. Boston College is 2-4 against the spread in their last 6 games against an opponent in the Big East and the total has gone over in 6 of the Eagles last 9 games.
Our numbers show the best opportunity to fill your pockets with cash in this College Basketball Season opener between Boston College vs Villanova is to roll with the under 141.5 total points at the -110 price.
